NotesEdit

  1. An instrumental version of "WrestleMania" was used as the theme song for WrestleManias X (1994) through XIV (1998). It was also later used as Linda McMahon's entrance music.
  2. The Nasty Boys Stomp borrowed the percussion and a very similar bass beat from the song "Visions of China" by Japan as well as "Nasty" by Janet Jackson.
  3. Incorporated elements from the wrestler's entrance music.
